Whale Watching Moonshadow-TQC Cruises Port Stephens

The passengers today aboard the Spirit of Port on the morning cruise were entertained with 2 medium to large Whales heading south bound.  They were logging which is a behaviour they exhibit when at rest and appear like “logs”.  It is lying without forward movement at the surface of the water with the dorsal fin or parts of the back exposed.  On the return trip 14 seals were spotted sleeping on the rocks.

During the afternoon cruise 6 Humpback Whales were sighted on the eastern side of Bondelah and followed them to Final Island.  There was a heat run in action with fin tail slapping, lobbing and a breach near the boat.
